@RgbMoreFps -- two thoughts:
1. your motherboard must support UEFI. I presume that it does.
2. You may need a few steps:
- download the free "Macrium Reflect" software, and make a "bootable" file (either on DVD or on an empty USB memory-stick)
- purchase a new disk-drive
- connect it, without disconnecting your current disk-drive
- enter BIOS SETUP, and select UEFI
- change the "boot order" to first boot from that DVD or that USB memory-stick
- save/exit from BIOS SETUP
- boot into Macrium Reflect
- choose to "clone" from the current disk-drive onto the new disk-drive
- restart, and change the "boot order" to boot from the new disk-drive
This may be necessary, because your motherboard, while running in UEFI mode, will not boot from your "legacy" disk-drive.
Or, purchase a new disk-drive, switch to UEFI mode, and install Windows onto it. Then, copy your Personal Files from "old" to "new" disk-drive.

@RgbMoreFps -- Yes
Then, you need to replace the motherboard to one that does support UEFI.
Changing the motherboard will also require you to purchase a new license to run Windows,
because your current license is "tied" to your current motherboard -- Microsoft states that you cannot transfer the original license to a different computer.

@RgbMoreFps -- now my computer is die
Is your computer less than 12 months old? If so, then contact HP Support, to open a claim against the HP Warranty, to get HP to repair/replace your computer, at HP's expense.
Otherwise, tell us more about the symptoms.
Does it react at all when you press the ON/OFF button?
Do you hear any noise from the fans inside the computer?

@RgbMoreFps -- 8 years old, and now "dead"
Sad news. Is it time for you to purchase a new computer, that runs Windows 11 ?
You may be able to take the disk-drive out of the older computer, and temporarily connect it as a "secondary" disk-drive in the new computer, to copy all your Personal Files.
